My place and yours: A view of your secret weapon


This weeks Theme Queen My Bricole chose 'A view of your secret weapon' for My Place and Yours.

These are my small sewing scissors, they are silver and gold, the sharpest scissors I have ever owned (apparently they will stay this sharp for 100 years!!) in the shape of a stork.

Not only do they assist in unpicking my botched sewing mistakes but assist in keeping my fringe nice and neat, almost to an unhealthy degree - I'm obsessed with maintaining a straight fringe.

Love your choice! I can't sew anything without my tiny scissors or a seam ripper close by.

Oh the stork scissors! Awesome! I love your drawing! Golly! I especially like the background, and I love the way you approach this, Ms Claire Murphy Tunabake Mouse!

These are so amazing looking. I had to look at them twice to work them out. I love them.

Stork scissors, whatever will they think of next ? Seriously groovy scissors & I applaude your dedication to a straight fringe.

Fringes can never be too well maintained.

Hurrah for stork scissors! Mine were a giftie years ago. It is good to know the will stay sharp long after my crafting time is up. I enjoy your images too. Thanks for sharing
